I HATE IT. That means I most likely will give short abrupt answers. Because what the hell! I'll probs get downvoted for it anyways! so what's the point of me putting the effort in? Just to get downvoted anyways... and let's face it some will downvote us cuz they don't like us!
I thought it should come back, but I have no intention of using it often, and certainly not maliciously. In fact, I expect to be on the receiving end of far more downvotes than I give out, by a wide margin!
At least people who disagree with me don't have to annoy me to hell and back and don't have to read their pathetic excuse of an "argument". I'm not going to and don't down vote often, but when I don't agree with someone or don't agree with me, we all can move on with our lives than give them the time of day to even acknowledge their existence 🙂🙃🙂🙃
Honestly I didn't notice when it was there, when it went I soon forgot about it apart from the periodic debate, now its back, there will be a bit of chatter and I will forget about it again in a couple of days so no skin of my nose.
Downvote me so I know it's real. Tbh it's an unnecessary feature. To me it's a diference between not "liking" what someone said rather than "disagreeing". A lot of responses to questions aren't even really opinionated I. e "My hair is black or I graduate university next year yet you still see a downvote. They should show us who downvotes you so that if you notice a pattern from a certain user so that you can block them, then they can no longer mention, comment, or up/downvote you.
Actually I was happy that they were gone but I'm also happy that they are back. I still don't want them, but it took them such a long time that I was almost sure that they just said they bring them back to make the community shut up.
Noo my butt didn't hurt when it was taken away.. And I'm not making fun of people who don't want it... But I don't like when everything is nice and positive forever!! It's annoying!!😁😁!! There has to be an evil to everything to know what true happiness is!!😜!! I like the thumb down!! He's my friend!! Haha!! I know it sucks when loser people have no thing better to do than to them down people simply because they dislike the person rather than the actual comment, but it's even weirder that some of those people being down voted get sooooo touchy about it... It's just a damn thing in a screen.. Too weird to be bothered!! 😉!!
Think about it, having the down vote option can sometimes lead to less of a trolling problem.
Example: if someone just asks a question like "what hair color would look best on me?" and one of the comments said "none, your an ugly cunt" the person might feel bad about themselves and have their feelings hurt. But, if the person that called them an ugly cunt had a bunch of downvotes, the asker might realize that the person was just a troll and people disagreed with them.
Also, I like to be able to say that I disagree with someone without having to start a flame war in the comments.
Neither option applies to me. I was disappointed when they took it away, but I stopped caring after that. I'm glad it's back, but I also don't care how other people feel about it. Nobody is forcing us to like or dislike posts.
I never really cared if someone down voted me. I am glad to see it's back. Not everyone is going to agree with my opinion. No one has ever really been harsh with me, but if I am going to get butt hurt, it will be from a mean comment. I won't get upset from a down vote. I don't understand what can be offensive about it.
